A typical day in my life includes…

each day is an adventure and I never really know where I’ll end up. I do try to work out and stay in touch with friends and associates. But I can guarantee I will spend a lot of time on calls, texting, and driving. But not texting and driving.

I was born…

in Michigan.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

hands down, the friendly people. The Valley has become quite the metropolis, but it still has small town values. People come here from all over the U.S., to live, vacation, or do business and they want to be here. Totally reflects in overall demeanor, or maybe it’s all this great sunshine!

I’m listening to…

classical music and professional development podcasts.

My family…

is my core. I come from a big Polish family and family has always been huge. Still is.

One thing I cannot live without…

my phone! I have an app for everything and run my businesses via my phone. Everything from keeping in touch with mom to finding products or properties, marketing, photography, transactions, plus staying in touch with friends and family!

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a ballet dancer and an interior designer.

I’m inspired by…

strong women who carry themselves with grace inspire me.

The one person who motivates me is…

motivated people. Nothing makes a day extra fun and full of life than being around other motivated people. Really big things happen!

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

I’d make sure all children experience love and compassion growing up and no one would have to go to bed hungry or not know how to read.

The perfect day would be…

it’s the little things that make up my perfect day. Laughing with friends. Being productive. Bringing joy to someone’s life. Achieving some goal that I hadn’t achieved yet. I find a little bit of perfection in every day.

My first job was…

my first official job was as a McDonald’s cashier.

My favorite escape…

mani-pedi time!

My life…

is fast-paced, never a boring moment, full of stories and great people, twists and turns, exactly what I want it to be.

I’m currently working on…

a ton of things! Primarily centered around real estate, interior design, and my term as President of Arizona North Chapter of American Society of Interior Designers (ASID.)

Always…

embrace the day with gusto and be grateful; it’s the little things that make the journey meaningful.

Never…

assume!

Favorite Quote…

I have two: “What would you do if you knew you would not fail?” I painted the quote on the side door so the kids would see it when they took out the trash. The other is, “People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” – Maya Angelou

Biggest Dream…

to travel the world – still so much to see and be inspired by!

My Pet Peeve(s)…

snarky-ness and bad lighting.
